After breakfast, saddle up for a trail ride at Horse Play Rentals in the Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center, where guided walk-only group rides wind through the hills overlooking the park. For kids of all ages in the summer months, Adventure Playground— also known as “Mud Park”—plays dirty with a small rafting pond, mudslide area, rope-climbing, and fort-building. Pro tip: Bring towels and a change of clothes. Seeking something indoors? Jump around at Get Air Surf City indoor trampoline park near Bolsa Chica Road and Bolsa Avenue.
Time to burn off lunch! Head to the beach to swim, surf, skimboard, bodyboard, spike a volleyball, toss a frisbee, fly kites, build sandcastles, or even rent bicycles. Kayaking in Huntington Harbour is another on-the-water option, and rentals are available right along Pacific Coast Highway. Have skaters in your pack? Pop over to Vans Off the Wall Skatepark near The Village at Old World to watch them grind some rails.
If you hit the Skatepark, neighboring Grinderz, a skate-themed locals-run burger joint, is the perfect place to relax, refuel, and recap the afternoon’s most epic tricks. 2nd Floor on Main Street hosts a kids eat free night on Tuesdays, featuring arts and crafts, face painting, live music, and bites for any young palette, from nachos and mac & cheese, to burgers and pizza. Craving Mexican Food? Try Las Barcas on Atlanta Avenue and Beach Boulevard, a local favorite since 1987.
Take in your perfect day in Surf City USA and gather ‘round a warm beach bonfire—with s’mores in hand, of course.
